Baytown Sun closes online discussion forum

From staff reports
Baytown Sun

Published May 15, 2008 - Updated 4 minutes ago

The Baytown Sun suspended its online discussion board, Baytown Talk, on Thursday due to the large number of readers who continued to violate the board's guidelines.

"At least temporarily, we've taken this step because a few readers continued to post inappropriate material," Publisher Cliff Clements said. "We're sorry it came to this. Thanks to all those who joined the site and tried to participate in legitimate dialogue about Baytown."

Clements said The Sun is committed to fostering community discussions through its site. The newspaper will explore ways to provide additional discussion opportunities in the future.

I am beginning to think that removing Baytown Talk was a good thing.

The Baytown talk was a great idea if it had been used for the purpose that it was put there for it would not have been shut down.

There were a select few that thught they would make a joke out of serious questions and more or elss tried to run the forum.

I too think it was a good idea to close it.

Being a Baytown resident for 40 years and then moving out of state, Baytown Talk was a way to get the 'extra news' from home. I did see some posts that did not follow the guidelines but was able to pick and choose. Maybe The Sun can try another format later on for those of us that no longer live in Baytown but like to keep up with the extra news.

It is never a good idea to restrict free speech...

Steve,

You were a proud racist and homophobe. You viciously attacked other posters who did not agree with you often without even being provoked in any way. You sir, are a HUGE reason why Baytown Talk was shut down.

I guess the Baytown Sun would seem liberal to a person who clearly lives by Mein Kampf.

well thanks, but you have me way over rated, actually the gay liberal socialists, bickering on there got it removed. and I would just bet you are one of the main ones. lets see are you the fired school teacher that was teaching socialism in her class?? or perhaps the lez that was a rabid obama canidate, and went to the convention.-- or maybe the far left HENRY.-- which lefty are you???????

I was sorry to see it go. It was helpful to someone new coming into the area as I was. I wish they'd bring it back, it was by far the best thing about the Baytown Sun.

Steve,

Thank you for proving my point for me.

If anyone had any doubts about what I said about you they are gone now.

Steve Wright,

The fact is, you know nothing about me. You don't know what I support or who I voted for. The only thing you can know for sure from my posts is that I know from your previous boastings on Baytown Talk that you are a self-admitted racist and homophobe who contributed to the reasons why Baytown Talk was pulled....AND you are quite proud of your ignorance.

This is what people like you do when you feel threatened by your shortcomings. You create a fictious drama in your head about those who point out how inadequate you are by using slurs and insults to shift the focus from you to someone else.

That's a really juvenile and pathetic way to live. The good news is, you can change.

Here's what you can do: wipe the nacho cheese off your "who farted?" T-shirt, put down the Budweiser, and take your big fat ass out of your trailor. There is a whole world out there full of people who aren't "gay," "commies," "leftys," "socialists," or "Henrys." But, the drawback is, they will probably think you suck too. So, for your already fragile self-esteem it's probably best for you to stay put and keep living with your mother and avoiding your child support payments (that is, if some woman was actually stupid enough to have sex with you).

Cheeze? Is that how they spell the generic off-brand your broke ass can afford? Maybe if you get a job and work really hard you can afford Velveeta someday soon.

And no, I'm not BIT CHI. Guess again.

So, do you call every woman who thinks you are a pathetic POS a "lezbo?" Is that your defense mechanism of choice this time little Stevie? I wonder how long it has been since you have actually seen a woman's "lips?" Months, years, ever? Is it your beer belly and mullet that turn women off first or is it your repulsive Marlboro Red and pork rind breath?

seems like you enjoy keeping it stired up.you live to argue and slur. thats a very sad life.now you want to play (guess who).then you have to be one of the lesbos spit swapping gay bar hopping girl friends. defintly a big supporter of gay rights, socialism, terrorist rights, criminals rights, and any other far left field , anti america cause you can bleed for. you are way to dumb to be HIS MAJESTY HIGHLANDS BOY. and maybe a little higher in the gene pool, than HENRY THE FAR LEFT. but you do have the curry smell of JAMIL the local camel riding america hating terrorist. but JAMIL with his IRANIAN education is more pro america than you . so I guess that eliminated the little head wrapping goat milker. so you are just one of the commie spit swapping girl friends ,to the head of the local commie coven.
